Kim Jong Un’s Newest Threat: We Will Respond to ‘Fire With Fire’

The rogue regime in North Korea has sent America a threat, through the unusual channel of a letter to Australia, promising it will respond to “fire with fire” . . .

North Korea has been issuing threats against America for some time, both through its statements and its actions.

Friday, the London Mirror reported that Kim Jong Un’s rhetoric had been boosted another notch, with his declaration the U.S. will have to put up with his nuclear status.

“This is a matter of life and death for us,” the RIA news agency reported him as saying. “The current situation deepens our understanding that we need nuclear weapons to repel a potential attack.

“We will respond to fire with fire.” (Read more from “Kim Jong Un’s Newest Threat: We Will Respond to ‘Fire With Fire'” HERE)

Muslim Refugee in Obama ‘Welcome City’ Busted for Pedophilia

A Muslim refugee from Burma, also called Myanmar, is facing multiple sexual assault charges after he allegedly tried to kiss and fondled four girls between the ages of 7 and 12 in a New Hampshire town that just over a year ago became one of President Obama’s “Welcoming Cities.”

Police said the incidents allegedly occurred at some kind of gathering but were not more specific.

Mohammod Rafique, 27, a member of the Rohingya Muslim minority that is fleeing Burma, has been living in Nashua, New Hampshire, for almost two years but speaks no English.

Police cracked the case open after a 10-year-old Nashua girl told her family, then police, and then child-welfare advocates that a man “drank too much, (became) ‘touchy-touchy,’ rubbed her upper thigh and touched her buttocks,” according to the Telegraph, Nashua’s local newspaper . . .

Welcoming America was founded by Obama friend and open-borders promoter David Lubell, whose agenda is to “water the soil,” softening up residents of U.S. cities to accept the seeding of Third World refugees and illegal immigrants.

DHS Head Demands That Social Media Firms Censor “Extremist Propaganda” – Like Advocating for Constitutional Liberty

The acting U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke has called on Silicon Valley to remove extremist content, Reuters reported.

The United States and Britain are set to push social media firms to deal with the problem at a G7 meeting of interior ministers this week, Duke told reporters in London where she had been meeting British Home Secretary (interior minister), Amber Rudd.

“There has been a shift and for us somewhat with the Charlottesville incident,” she said. “There are a lot of social pressures and they want do business so they really have to balance between keeping their user agreements and giving law enforcement what they need.”

But that’s not all; the Trump administration is also trying to go after encryption technology.

“We would like to have the ability to get encrypted data with the right legal processes,” Duke said.

It’s an argument that has persisted since the Obama administration – should the government have backdoor access to encrypted chat apps despite being in a violation of civil liberties?

Duke said there’s been a change in the behavior of tech companies since a rally organized by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August turned deadly when a counter-protester was killed after a man drove his car into the crowd deliberately killing a woman Heather Heyer.

“The fact they are meeting with us at G7 is a positive sign. I think they’re seeing the evidence of it being real and not just hyperbole,” Duke said.

Now the tech companies themselves are going to be meeting with G7 leaders to handle this problem of “extremist content.” But does that define just ISIS videos, or is the definition broader? She actually answered that question, and so has Google and its subsidiary YouTube who have begun a crackdown on content on the video platform and search engine.

“The number of foreign fighters we have returning is declining,” she said. “The number of home-grown violent extremists, most of them inspired by terrorist organizations, is increasing.”

Notice how she didn’t state ISIS, she said the broad definition “terrorist organizations.”

Google and YouTube have even begun targeting “conspiracy theories” and websites spreading “conspiracy theory as factual information without basis.”

Obama’s DHS didn’t hesitate to call those who believe in conspiracy theories potential right-wing terrorists, stating the following points might make someone a terrorist in a study by the University of Maryland, which was funded in part by the Department of Homeland Security.

Americans who “are fiercely nationalistic, as opposed to universal and international in orientation”
Americans considering themselves “anti-global”
Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority”
Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty (especially their right to own guns and be free of taxes)”
Americans exhibiting a belief in “conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty and a belief that one’s personal and/or national way of life is under attack”

Specifically listing Americans who love liberty as terrorists, noting two subgroups of “right-wing extremism” were identified as “gun rights” and “tax protest,” according to PJ Media.

After all, according to U.K. think tank Demos, literature from more than 50 extremist groups includes “conspiracy theories.”

So how will Trump’s administration compare to his predecessor? It has almost been a year since President Donald Trump took office and we seem to be losing more and more of our rights day by day. I guess in the eyes of the DHS I am a terrorist and so are you if you just read this article.

Federal Court Rules WWI Monument in Shape of Cross Is Unconstitutional

In remembrance of those who never came home from the war to end all wars, the veterans and citizens of Prince George’s County, Maryland, erected a towering cross in their honor.

Since 1925, the cross has stood at what is now the intersection of Maryland Route 450 and U.S. Route 1 in Bladensburg, Maryland.

A federal appeals court now says it has to go.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said the 40-foot-tall cross “has the primary effect of endorsing religion and excessively entangles the government in religion,” according to The Washington Post.

Although the initial funds to erect the memorial came from donations, the cross is maintained by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, which is a state agency.

The court did not care that the cross is part of a larger collection of memorials in the vicinity, saying that “the sectarian elements easily overwhelm the secular ones.”

“The cross is by far the most prominent monument in the area, conspicuously displayed at a busy intersection,” wrote Judge Stephanie D. Thacker, who was joined in her opinion by Judge James A. Wynn, Jr.

“The district court determined that such government action does not run afoul of the Establishment Clause because the cross has a secular purpose,” they wrote.

The judges stated blatantly that the monument still does endorse religion, despite the lower court’s reasoning.

The judges also described the cross, writing, “one side of the base contains a two-foot tall, nine-foot wide plaque listing the names of the 49 soldiers from Prince George’s County whom the Cross memorializes, followed by a quote by President Woodrow Wilson.”

“The Latin cross is the core symbol of Christianity. And here, it is 40 feet tall; prominently displayed in the center of one of the busiest intersections in Prince George’s County, Maryland; and maintained with thousands of dollars in government funds,” the pair said.

“Therefore, we hold that the purported war memorial breaches the “wall of separation between Church and State.”

They wrote that even though it might be common knowledge that the monument was erected to honor to soldiers who lost their lives in World War I, that was not enough to keep it standing where it is.

“(A) reasonable observer would know that the Cross is dedicated to 49 World War I veterans and that veteran services occur at the Cross,” they wrote. “The private organizers pledged devotion to faith in God, and that same observer knows that Christian-only religious activities have taken place at the Cross.”

The judges added that no specific party “has come forward with any evidence to the contrary,” and noted that the “Latin cross generally represents Christianity.”

“These factors collectively weigh in favor of concluding that the Cross endorses Christianity — not only above all other faiths, but also to their exclusion,” the opinion read, according to Patheos.

However, Chief Judge Roger L. Gregory dissented.

“This Memorial stands in witness to the VALOR, ENDURANCE, COURAGE, and DEVOTION of the forty-nine residents of Prince George’s County, Maryland ‘who lost their lives in the Great War for the liberty of the world,’” Gregory wrote.

“I cannot agree that a monument so conceived and dedicated and that bears such witness violates the letter or spirit of the very Constitution these heroes died to defend,” he said, as reported by Fox News.

Those defending the memorial lashed out at the decision.

“Today’s decision sets dangerous precedent by completely ignoring history, and it threatens removal and destruction of veterans memorials across America,” said Hiram Sasser, deputy chief counsel for First Liberty, which helped represent the American Legion in the case.

“This memorial has stood in honor of local veterans for almost 100 years and is lawful under the First Amendment,” said Michael Carvin, lead counsel for The American Legion and partner at the Jones Day law firm. “To remove it would be a tremendous dishonor to the local men who gave their lives during The Great War.”

The American Humanist Association had originally brought the case to court, claiming that the cross violated the First Amendment.

A U.S. District Court judge turned down its request to have the cross taken down, giving rise to the appeal.

“The American Legion’s commitment to preserving the Bladensburg Memorial has been unwavering,” said Kelly Shackelford, president and CEO of First Liberty.

Shackelford also cited the determination illustrated by former President Woodrow Wilson, whose words are engraved at the memorial’s base: “The right is more precious than the peace; we shall fight for the things we have always carried nearest to our hearts; to such a task we dedicate ourselves.”

“We are exploring all of our options on behalf of the American Legion,” she added, “including an appeal directly to the U.S. Supreme Court.” (For more from the author of “Federal Court Rules WWI Monument in Shape of Cross Is Unconstitutional” please click HERE)

There ‘Will Be Blood’ on Netflix Hands Over El Chapo Documentary, According to Actor

By John Koblin. Sean Penn and Netflix are fighting over a documentary series that will become available early Friday, with a lawyer for Mr. Penn saying in a letter to the streaming service that it is “hereby on notice that blood will be on their hands if this film causes bodily harm.”

The series in question, “The Day I Met El Chapo: The Kate del Castillo Story,” centers on the bizarre episode in October 2015 when Ms. del Castillo, a Mexican actress, and Mr. Penn were given an audience with one of the world’s most wanted men, the drug dealer Joaquín Guzmán Loera, also known as El Chapo.

Mr. Penn later wrote about the meeting in an article for Rolling Stone that was published just a day after Mr. Guzmán was captured by authorities.

In a letter sent last week, Mr. Penn’s lawyer, Theodore J. Boutrous Jr., warned Netflix that the series would put his client in danger and demanded that the company make changes to the content of the documentary. Mr. Penn did not participate in “The Day I Met El Chapo,” and it largely revolves around Ms. del Castillo’s account. The documentary has not been changed.

Mexican Actress Claims She Had Casual Sex With Penn While Filming “El Chapo”

By Jessica Finn. Mexican actress Kate del Castillo has bluntly revealed that during the filming for her documentary ‘The Day I Met El Chapo’ she had sex with Sean Penn – a claim backed up in the film.

‘I never fell for him, we had sex. Sorry but we are both adults, single, and something was going on but that was it, it was business’ she said during her interview on Good Morning America promoting her film out on Netflix Friday.

However, in the film, the actress describes the Hollywood star seducing her.

‘He said, “That moment when you touched my chest I knew something would happen between us”,’ on their way to spending the night together after they pair met the famed drug lord. (Read more from “There ‘Will Be Blood’ on Netflix Hands Over El Chapo Documentary,” HERE)

Judging by Mueller’s Staffing Choices, He May Not Be Very Interested in Justice

Much has been written about the prosecutorial prowess of Robert Mueller’s team assembled to investigate allegations of Russia’s involvement in the Trump campaign. Little has been said of the danger of prosecutorial overreach and the true history of Mueller’s lead prosecutor.

What was supposed to have been a search for Russia’s cyberspace intrusions into our electoral politics has morphed into a malevolent mission targeting friends, family and colleagues of the president. The Mueller investigation has become an all-out assault to find crimes to pin on them — and it won’t matter if there are no crimes to be found. This team can make some.

Many Americans despise President Trump and anyone associated with him. Yet turning our system of justice into a political weapon is a danger we must guard against. (Read more from “Judging by Mueller’s Staffing Choices, He May Not Be Very Interested in Justice” HERE)

George Soros Denounced by Hungary as ‘Satan’ Seeking to Destroy ‘Christian Europe’

George Soros is “Satan.” And his agenda is one that “from its heart hates Christian Europe’s traditions and civilization” [said] two high-profile Hungarian officials in their recent remarks attacking the Hungarian-American hedge fund billionaire and philanthropist. . .

In a speech entititled “The Christian duty to fight against the Satan/Soros Plan,” András Aradszki, the government’s secretary of state for energy, framed his ruling party’s long running campaign against Soros for the first time in explicitly theological terms.

Linking Soros to “abortion, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, and the forced politicization of gender theory,” Aradszki declared from the floor of Hungary’s parliament Sunday, “The Soros mercenaries do not cite the Holy Father’s thoughts on this.”

He added: “Soros and his comrades want to destroy the independence and values of nation states for the purpose of watering down the Christian spirit of Europe.”

Citing an alleged plan by Soros for to forcibly settle “tens of millions of migrants” in Europe, Aradszki declared, “The fight against Satan is a Christian duty. Yes, I speak of an attack by Satan, who is also the angel of denial, because they are denying what they are preparing to do — even when it is completely obvious.” (Read more from “George Soros Denounced by Hungary as ‘Satan’ Seeking to Destroy ‘Christian Europe'” HERE)

DHS Secretary Just Warned of ‘Severe Threat’ of New 9/11-Style Attack by ISIS and Al-Qaeda

Islamic State and Al-Qaeda terrorists are plotting to take down a plane and carry out a devastating explosion on the same scale of 9/11 according to the United States Security Chief.

“The terrorist organizations, be it ISIS or Al-Qaeda or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11. They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that,” the acting US secretary of homeland security, Elaine Duke said during a visit to the UK, as cited by the Telegraph.

The attack on September 11, 2001, was the deadliest attack in US history and has been surrounded by controversy since which makes this tying it in with this warning of new attacks particularly worrisome.

“The threat is still severe,” said Duke on Wednesday in London following her meeting with Home Secretary Amber Rudd, where the officials discussed terrorist content online.

According to Duke, the terrorists are just using these recent smaller attacks to keep their members “engaged.”

“In the interim, they need to keep their finances flowing and they need to keep their visibility high and they need to keep their members engaged, so they are using small plots and they are happy to have small plots,” Duke said.

Duke warned that at the same time, however, smaller plots can be followed with major ones.

“Creating terror is their goal. A bladed weapon attack causes terror and continues to disrupt the world, but that does not mean they have given up on a major aviation plot,” she said.

What makes this warning particularly ominous is that, according to reports, just one day before the US security chief’s warnings, Andrew Parker, director general MI5, Britain’s domestic intelligence agency, said that Britain was under unprecedented threat from Islamist terrorists.

Naturally, this new series of threats comes with a price. To protect you from these attacks, social media companies will have to better cooperate with authorities to help them spy on you.

“We will continue to push as far as we can go. I think that we have the cooperation of those companies and we just need to work on that,” she said. Social media firms joining a meeting of G7 interior ministers to discuss the issue this week “is a positive sign,” she said.

“We would like to have the ability to get encrypted data with the right legal processes,” said Ms. Duke.

The surveillance state has capitalized on the recent tragic attacks in the United Kingdom and used them to push for less privacy and more oversight of your online activities.

After the series of jihadi attacks, British Prime Minister Theresa May called on “allied democratic governments” to “regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremism and terrorism planning.”

The United States is now using Charlottesville as their reason for demanding access to your social media data.

As the Telegraph notes:

Ms. Duke said the US and Britain would push social media firms at a meeting of G7 interior ministers this week to do more to tackle online militant material.

She said there had already been a change in the attitude of tech companies since a rally organized by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August turned deadly when a counter-protester was killed by a car driven into a crowd.

Sadly, however, no amount of online spying would’ve prevented a psychopath from driving his car into a crowd.

“There has been a shift and for us somewhat with the Charlottesville incident,” she said. “There are a lot of social pressures and they want do business so they really have to balance between keeping their user agreements and giving law enforcement what they need.

“The fact they are meeting with us at G7 is a positive sign. I think they’re seeing the evidence of it being real and not just hyperbole.”

Hopefully, for the sake of innocent people, this new threat of a 9/11-style attack is just that, hyperbole.

As TFTP has noted on several occasions, the government needs you to constantly fear an attack, as the FBI has stated it is their mission “to keep fear alive.”

David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer, had this to say about these most unscrupulous operations:

Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.

Indeed, we’ve become a lunatic asylum.

Bill and Hillary Clinton Not Speaking After Blow-Up Over Memoir, Author Says

Bill and Hillary Clinton are no longer speaking to one another after a fight over edits to the former Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign memoir, according to a controversial author and journalist who has covered the Clintons for years.

Ed Klein, who says he has reliable sources close to the former first family, told “Fox & Friends” on Friday that former President Bill Clinton threw a manuscript of Hillary’s new book, “What Happened,” in the trash after she ignored his advice not to publish it. The book recounts her experience throughout the 2016 presidential election.

“He told her she looked angry and out of touch,” Klein told “Fox & Friends,” claiming Bill was giving Hillary constructive criticism and trying to help edit, but “she didn’t listen to him.”

“He tried to edit it and she would have nothing to do with it,” Klein said.

When asked for comment, Clinton representatives sharply disputed Klein’s reporting. (Read more from “Bill and Hillary Clinton Not Speaking After Blow-Up Over Memoir, Author Says” HERE)
